Ford Gives the F-150 a Full F-22 Raptor Tribute

Combining the best attributes of the world’s finest high-performance machines for air and ground, Ford’s design team created a Ford F-22 F-150 Raptor based on the U.S. Air Force’s Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor fighter jet for auction at AirVenture Oshkosh.

The one-of-a-kind truck fetched $300,000 for the Experimental Aircraft Association Gathering of Eagles – an organization and an event committed to aviation and encouraging youth involvement in flight.

Highlights of the Ford F-22 F-150 Raptor include:

  • Whipple-intercooled, high-output 3.5-liter twin-turbo EcoBoost® making 545 horsepower and 660 lb.-ft. of torque – taking off-road performance to intimidating new levels

  • Deaver rear spring pack to provide a smooth, progressive suspension
  • Fox bypass series shocks with adjustable compression and rebound valving to customize damping for on-road and off-road use

  • Upgraded Alcon six-piston painted calipers, oversized rotors, high-friction pads
  • Modular off-road 1.3-million candela LED lighting system by KC Hilites
  • Kicker audio system with 1,500 watts of amplification
  • Unique Sherwin-Williams exterior paint integrating F-22 Raptor jet cues including titanium grille with front silhouette of the aircraft; jet cues featured on the interior as well
  • DeBerti two-tire, gas and ProEagle jack holder
  • LineX sprayed bedliner
  • All-stainless-steel cat-back Borla exhaust system with carbon fiber tips
